Dudley PerkinsA Lil' Light ... CD
Stones Throw, 2003. Used ... $5.99
A nice, moody hip hop/funk album from one of the deepest talents on the Stones Throw roster! Dudley came to underground hip hop fame as Declaime, but really stepped forward as a durable, innovative artist with the Dudley Perkins singles that have dropped thus far – and A Lil Light soundly delivers on that promise. It's all about mood – this may be the murkiest, most muddily funky thing Madlib has ever produced, with crackly, hissing beats, bass and samples. Dudley's vocals are about as far from the crooning NuSoul sound as you can get. He's grooves along with an improvised feel to the lyrics, loosely scatting in both a rolling deep bass and a soulful, nearly crying falsetto. The sound falls somewhere between the denser parts of D'Angelo's Voodoo and the spacier aspects of 70s soul and funk. Totally unique and satisfying – would you expect any less of Stones Throw? Tracks include "Money", the Sun Ra-inspired "Gotta Go", "You Really Know Me?", "Washedbrainsyndrome", "Flowers", "Just Think", "Yo' Soul", "Momma", "Lil' Black Boy" and more. (Hip Hop, Neo Soul) CD

NxWorries (Anderson Paak & Knxwledge)Yes Lawd! ... CD
Stones Throw, 2016. Used ... $7.99
Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge's full length debut as a duo – and the most triumphant Stones Throw record in years! To this (still early) point in young .Paak's career, his voice has already proved to be a prime vessel for natural grit and mood, if not gamechanger songwriting, best paired with crackling, funk-steeped hip hop soul production. That's the case whether he's producing himself, working with a giant like Dr. Dre, or paired as he is here with Knxledge. Knx's production is a perfect backdrop – beats out front in the mix, classic Cali sample funk and soul framing the vocals – with a lingering haze holding it all together amazingly well! Intentional or not, Yes Lawd channels earlier Stones Throw classic LPs like Jaylib and Madvillain in the way it pairs distinctive contemporary talents for a joint duo effort, and after .Paak's solo shot Malibu, it's his second potential classic in a single year! Includes "Livvin", "Wngs", "What More Can I Say", "Kutless", "Lyk Dis", "Can't Stop", "Get Bigger", "Scared Money", "Suede", "Starlite", "Sidepiece", "Jodi", "Link Up", "Another Time", "Fkku" and more.

✨✧ ProphetDon't Forget It (yellow vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2020. New Copy ... $16.99 17.99
80s underground soul lives again in the hands of Prophet – an artist who recorded a bit back in the day, but who's reemerged in recent years with great new energy – thanks in part to strong support from the Stones Throw label! These tunes are heavy on beats, keyboards, and a really homegrown sense of funky soul – maybe proof that amidst some of the label's more contemporary experiments in similar territory, it's vintage artists who still do it best! And although Prophet might be a few years older than some of the rest, he's still got a very youthful vibe, and very distinct sound here – on titles that include "Human Like", "Be The One", "In My Ear", "Game To Make Love", "I Am I Is", "I Don't Care", and "So Much Love".

Sudan ArchivesAthena (bronze marble vinyl pressing) ... LP
Stones Throw, 2019. New Copy ... $18.99 19.99
A great full length album from Sudan Archives – an artist whose name is a bit misleading – as there's nothing Sudanese or archival in her sound! But the vibe of the record is maybe captured by the image on the cover – as the music all features violin, but in a contemporary soul setting that's also blended with her vocals – set to backings that are crispy and cosmic, and which maybe live up to the best sort of future soul music we were hearing from the Stones Throw label over a decade ago! Yet the violin really changes things up – almost making a 4AD take on soul music at times, although with an overall style that's a lot more contemporary Cali than vintage London – on titles that include "Did You Know", "Iceland Moss", "Coming Up", "House Of Open Tuning", "Limitless", "Stuck", Honey", "Ballet Of The Unhatched Twins", "Down On Me", and "Pelicans In The Summer".

✨✧ Sudan ArchivesSink ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
It's impossible to put a label on the sound of Sudan Archives – and while we were already blown away with the mix of future sounds and African inspiration on her debut EP, she's even more mindblowing here on an album that's based around recent experiences in Ghana! If you're expecting to hear familiar sounds of the continent, you'll be disappointed – but if you're ready for this amazing vision of a new global sonic landscape, then you'll really be blown away – as Sudan Archives weaves together the kind of cosmic currents you might expect from Stones Throw with lots of deep beats and basslines of her own creation – peppered occasionally with sounds from the Ghana visit, yet all fused into a new ball of sound that bristles and crackles with creative energy. Titles include "Beautiful Mistake", "Escape", "Pay Attention", "Mind Control", "Nont For Sale", and "Sink". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ ProphetWanna Be Your Man ... LP
Stones Throw, 2018. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
The hype sticker on this one might say it all – "First album in 34 years, still sounds like '84" – and that's definitely the spirit here, as overlooked soul artist Prophet serves up a host of sweet 80s keyboards and grooves! He's not alone, though – as Mndsgn is on board to help with all the instrumentation, songwriting, and production – allowing the sweetly light vocals of Prophet to shine even more, as he croons and grooves over tunes that are heavy on keyboards, and have lots of bassy touches on the funkier moments. Titles include "Wanna Be Your Man", "Party", "I Do Love", "Tonight", "Right On Time", "Dream", "Really Turn Me On", and "Ooo We Yeah". LP, Vinyl record album
